A 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 has a curb weight of 4,729 pounds. This weight doesn?t include any cargo or passengers. It has a payload capacity of 1,620 pounds and a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.
A vehicle?s maximum load capacity and maximum towing power give shoppers an idea of how much the vehicle can hold, including cargo and passengers and anything towed, such as a trailer or a trailer holding a horse. For example, a light-duty Ram 1500 with a maximum payload of 1,900 pounds and 10,650 pounds maximum towing is ideal for towing trailers, ATVs and most boats. A heavy-duty Ram 2500 or 3500 with a 7,390-pound maximum payload and 30,000 pounds maximum towing power tows an RV or horse trailer easily.
